What cyclocomputer are you using? I didn't recognize the buttons.....
I'm using the Garmin 800, and yes, 6.8% is the largest I recorded.

I had an almost disaster back in October riding a century. Highest recorded speed was 42+ mph but this was a real rough road and about the 48 second mark you can see where I went from the center line to the far right in a nano second. I also soiled my pants a little.
